How can you correct if you have already submitted it? Do you mean you submitted online? Normally with forms there is a space for any other information and you cna include it there, bit cross out cleanly the mistaken info.

Personally I would have had a go at changing the 7 to an 8. or crossed the seven out and put 9 above.

Id have probably put Muhammad in the intended box and put a line through the other box.

As backup I would have attached a piece of paper pointing out the error and the amendment you made, then signed and dated it.

Hi,

i discussed with my uni they asked me to edit/ correct it on printed application form and inform the ECO during interview and they also said it should not effect your application. i did the same, but up till now i have not received my application decision will inform you the outcome but hopefully it will be positive..

What advice did your uni gave you ? I have been advices to just write a cover letter stating my course end date is January 2019 not February 2019 as I wrote February instead of January. But I have attached the cover letter wirh my other documents. Did you just send the cover latter stating your mistake or you corrected your mistake in the printed form before sending it ? Your answer will help !

uni advice me to explain it to ECO in your interview, and also attach a simple cover letter explaining your mistakes...i did this and i also correct my mistakes on printed application...
but don't you worry at all as this is not going to create any problem as you also submit CAS along with your documents and actual starting and ending dates are mentioned there...

Hey, just thought I'd actually be helpful here because, I know the feeling of messing up this bad... But I have got a visa in the end.I made 4 mistakes and 3 of which were critical but I crossed them out on a hard copy of the application form, wrote the correct answers in pen and wrote a cover letter explaining the mistakes with the application and it worked!Hope this encourages anyone fearing they may have messed up, I was actually surprised. I would certainly try to avoid this in future but I'm glad it worked this time.

May i ask what is the format for the cover letter? I needed to write one but not sure of the format for the cover letter.

I filled out my course level qualification wrong as well. I'm hoping since it's stated in the CAS that it will be ok, but I've already submitted and it's on it's way to NY...I think I'll try to contact the university visa support on monday.
